    The Walmart we did last year is newly staked so USM has found a real smart company too plow it. At the numbers guesstimated for the contract they should be able to plow 6-7 times and still make money. The only problem is last year we plowed over 30 times.:D Many happy free saltings and shoveling events too them!:rolleyes:

    Wal-Mart

    I plowed snow for several Wal-Mart Supercenter locations for the last 10 years and was offered half of what they had paid prior if i wanted to keep them. I don't see how USM is finding contractors that can keep up with the demands of a Supercenter for the little amount of money they are willing to pay.

    I still think we have a better chance of seeing bigfoot before we see a "contractor" for walmart.

    funny thing about these fellas is when the big one hits , they're literally going to bury themselves. then , wallymart will have no other choice but to call a qualified G.C. to clear the lot. which will teach walmart area property managers a lesson , big time . As we all know , calling a contractor during and or after a crippling snowfall is nearly impossible because were already committed . But I'm sure when the #'s are right like 250 -350 hr. per piece , and that is just what they'll pay , because they have already "shopped" around and cannot afford more lossed time, revenue or litgation .
